Do you use propane for your farm or agribusiness? Focus on Energy, in partnership with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin Office of Energy Innovation (PSC WI-OEI), is offering energy efficiency incentives for agricultural customers who currently use propane to fuel specific equipment.

To qualify:

  • Must be a farm or agribusiness.
  • Must have a Focus on Energy participating utility provider.
  • Must use propane to fuel incentivized equipment.
  • Funding is limited; start saving today! Get in touch with an Energy Advisor.
